Junior University - Summer Programs

2019 Summer Programs

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS MAY 27, 2019

The Dalhousie Faculty of Medicine's Indigenous Health Program, in partnership with The Johnson Scholarship foundation, will be hosting THREE health sciences summer camps in Nova Scotia for Indigenous students this summer. As a participant in the program, students will be exposed to a variety of health care professions and training programs through interactive, hands on programming. The 2018 camps were a huge success. We were able to put 43 students through the program in 2018 up from 24 in 2017 and the feedback from all involved was extremely positive.  

2019 is looking to be the best year yet with all kinds of new learning opportunities being added to the already stellar lineup of workshops and cultural activities. In addition to the regular programing the 2019 Junior University summer camp will offer 2 students a $1000.00 promise scholarship provided by the AIMS network. We strive to constantly improve the camp experience every year using the feedback from participants and facilitators to inform our efforts.

The Junior University programs are hosted at;

  • Dalhousie University (July 7-11)
  • St. Francis Xavier University (July 16-19)
  • Cape Breton University (July 22-25)

with the collaboration of Nova Scotia Community College. Indigenous Students from grade (8-11) are encouraged to apply.
